The culinary scene in Pune has elevated to a new degree ever since globalization hit us in all its glory. French cuisine has wandered into our city and its finesse has charmed Punekars. With their cuisine come Macarons- small, round cakes with a meringue-like consistency, made with egg white, sugar and powdered almonds, consisting of two halves sandwiching a creamy filling. They’re pretty tricky to prepare and perfect but these places in Pune are nailing them!
Le Plaisir | Bhandarkar Road
One of the best and most renowned Freach eateries in the city, Le Plaisir serves authentic French food unlike any other. As for their Macarons, they are made of almond flour and every bite is a bit of heaven. They are sold in multiple flavours, so go all out with your selection.
Krustys | Koregaon Park | Kharadi | Kothrud
A small, cozy eatery serving European cuisine, they are particularly known for their desserts. From Chocolate Eclairs to Macarons, these small, colourful goodies will make you sigh in gastronomic pleasure. Try their mango, chocolate, and vanilla variants!
Le Sugar Rush | Mukund Nagar
As the name suggests, this eatery is a heaven for those who obey their sweet tooth. From Belgian Chocolate to Chocolate Ganache, you can get your Macarons customised as per your choice of flavour.

Meringue – Desserts & Confections | Camp

Piatto Dessert Studio Café | Kalyani Nagar
We particularly love the Mint Chocolate Macaron here! Piatto, Italian for “plate”, serves everything prepared from scratch. Other than their Macarons, you absolutely must try their Raspberry Chocolate pastry- unbelievably delicious!
